The IS350 appears to be a very quick sports sedan with good, but BMW-level
handling. A good alternative to a 330i for those who value reliability and
quickness above handling and driver involvement (no manual offered).

The IS250 is, shall we be kind?, not an attractive buy vs. a 325i or a G35.

Correction

That should have been:

"The IS350 appears to be a very quick sports sedan with good, but NOT
BMW-level handling."

Regrets for the typo.

I researched for 4 weeks, took the IS350 for a test drive 6 times, took
the 330i for a test drive 4 times. Looked at every aspect, handling,
interior, convenience, price, resale value, styling, comfort. The lexus
just seemed to come up on top in everything. Some people will say the
handling of the BMW is better. I agree. But it is not that much better,
so I didn't worry about that. The lexus handles beautifully. Thats all
I'm worried about. The lexus also cost me $3000 less in an apples to
apples to comparision. I bought the lexus. This might help.

Hope this helps. Thanks.

I test drove the IS350 and found it every bit as interesting as the BMW330
at driving.
Plus, its faster, more luxurious, likely more reliable, and cheaper.
I chose not to purchase it because of the back seat issue. It's too small
for someone that really needs to use it...although not as bad as the sc.
I think BMW should be worried, very worried.
